The Sea & Cake at Summerstage 2010 (more by Matthew Eisman)
Sea & Cake

It's not a full Sea & Cake show, but main men Sam Prekop and Archer Prewitt are playing together at Mercury Lounge on June 30 (tickets on sale Friday at noon). It's an early show (doors 7:30) and their only live date apart from a Sea & Cake show in the band's Chicago hometown on May 8. The Sea & Cake's most recent album was last year's The Moonlight Butterfly.

In related news, Sam Prekop guests on Laetitia Sadier's new solo album Silencio, which is out July 24 on Drag City. Also on the album is her former Stereolab cohort Tim Gane and former Zincs man James Elkington. No preview tracks or even cover art yet, but we do have a tracklisting for the album which you'll find below, along with those two Sea & Cake dates.
